Belly henna

A few months ago my next door neighbor Brandy, who does face and body painting, offered to do some henna on my belly. So of course I said I would take her up on that. She came over on Sunday before the Super Bowl and worked on an elaborate design that turned out absolutely amazing.

She was telling me that you can mix the henna yourself using essential oils that smell really good. The baby seemed to be reacting to it — I can’t remember the last time she rocked and rolled so much.

One thing I really wanted to have in the design was a pair of little feet. Aren’t they cute?

The design should last around 10 days, so hopefully it will still be visible when I have the baby. My midwife sure thought it was cool.
